  1. It's good. It's fun, I definitely want to play it again, but I do wish there was just a little something extra to it. Maybe if the stars gave you more gauge or more points the quicker you picked them up or something, or if there was an unlockable harder difficulty. It's fun though, I like it. edit: Oh, wait! There's a charge shot. "kill multiple enemies with your charge shot to release more stars and earn more points" Doh! I'll try that next time There, that's a bit better. Effed up the final boss, but the charge shot definitely makes things more interesting!
  2. Yeah, it's all just too much. I know some people like that though. Hazelnut Hex is on itch now https://chunderfins.itch.io/hazelnut-hex
  3. Wow, this feels amazing already! There's a score to beat if you fancy trying it. 16,925,480 - https://streamable.com/qwfqr7
  4. Finished NeverAwake. All worlds, route A and B. Can't say I enjoyed much of that, I have to be honest. Was just going through the motions most of the time. Boss fights weren't great. There are a lot of unnecessary unlockables, and it's very stop/start what with you doing each stage individually. The game had me going through previous levels and completing challenges in order to unlock the final world :S I would have much preferred a well balanced tight campaign instead of all these levels, but I think this is more aimed at normal people. I don't feel the urge to go back and beat my time or score on any of the stages. Certainly looks nice, and I don't regret buying it, but it's just not much fun to play, I don't think. It's been ages since I've played a twin stick shooter, my hands are aching in funny places and I've gotten a little blister on my right thumb edit: Oh, it plays better on mouse and keyboard, I think. I didn't even think to try that. Plays great in game, but navigating the menus is a right pain. It's all press "return" and press the keys "l" or "r", instead of the "l" and "r" bumpers on the pad, just madness.
  5. Don't Hug Me I'm Scared - **** Not quite as good as the shorts, but still brilliant fun!
  6. Yeah, that sounds good. NeverAwake comes out tomorrow, so I'll be wanting to play that first and Gunvein is coming out later in the month (unless it gets pushed back again), but hopefully I can slip some deathsmiles MBL in between those two. I want to see all this lovely slowdown on the new port. I've only ever played the other pc version of that mode which was just balls out, full speed all the way through as far as I could tell! Oh, hang on, that hazelnut hex is coming october first, that'll give you a witch fix. Deathsmiles might have to wait, but I'll see. There's a very early demo of edens eclipse here, if you're interested in trying it - https://xxgameroom.itch.io/edens-eclipse There's a demo for cyberblocker as well if you want to try that. Good fun arkanoid type game coming out in a couple of weeks. - https://store.steampowered.com/app/2123390/CyberBlocker_Complete_Edition/
  7. Ooh. This looks nice. Hazelnut Hex for switch and itch, coming october 1st. https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/Hazelnut-Hex-2271640.html Can't find the itch.io page at the minute, it mustn't be live yet.
  8. Make sure you switch fellas get cosmodreamer when that comes over as well. It's immense! This is good fun - CyberBlocker Complete Edition You can request access to the playtest on the steam page. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2123390/CyberBlocker_Complete_Edition/ I'm enjoying Bullet Hell Monday, it clicked for me the other day that you can suicide when you run out of bombs and get 3 bombs for free, so my scoring got a lot better. Got a "U" rank on everything bar the last stage now. Someone on the leaderboards is getting U++ ranks, but I haven't gotten there yet!
  9. Christ, you're playing hardcore mode! Hats off for being so high up the leaderboard, bradigor! If I thought my focus could go at any minute, I'd be keep cashing out my chain, I wouldn't be pushing my luck. I have very vague hazy memories of this game. I think I must have played it when it was on the vita, but I can't be sure. Maybe I saw the trailer when it came to the switch.
  10. Does mental health count? Leave the fruit for ages, you should be able to beat your score with your first chain if you hang on long enough. It's really good fun this! Not many people seem to be playing on pc, which is a big shame.
  11. I'd just want to sit back and chill so I'd play spelunky and listen to podcasts and music for my remaining gaming time. I'd still try and beat my score, but that's proper comfort gaming for me.
  12. Thanks man! This is a lot more intense. It's all or nothing, makes it even more risky to graze and ride the baddies at the start when you're letting the fruit build up ready for your first chain. No safety nets at all. I was a bit miffed when I discovered the key guy, that you pretty much had to use him and keep buying all the upgrades if you wanted to play for score, so I'm glad there's this separate leaderboard for playing like this. I'll just stick to this one from now. 451,670 so far.
  13. Oh, there's a thread! I've been posting about this in the shmup thread. I was having fun with this but someone dragged me away to play futari black label, but I'm gonna fire it up again today. How do I play pure mode? I can't find it on the menu. Do you just play "arcade mode" but make sure you choose the normal guy and run out all the power ups you bought first? Here's my best run on arcade mode - https://streamable.com/repue2
  14. Tha Dragon Maid thing is coming to steam. Did any of you play it on console? https://store.steampowered.com/app/2086380/Miss_Kobayashis_Dragon_Maid_Burst_Forth_ChorogonBreath_DIRECTORS_CUT/ Here's Jaimers playing extreme mode. Doesn't look toooo bad.
  15. There's a focus button as well. Shift I think, if you're using keyboard, slows you down to the same speed as the second shot. You can hold down both buttons at once and your bomb will deploy automatically when it's ready, that's a good way to play for survival just to get a feel for the layout of the stage at first. Was getting proper judgement silversword vibes from it. It's been designed so that the limitations of the system really compliment the game and don't hold it back. I was genuinely blown away by the quality of it. Let's just say 99% of the pico-8 games I've tried haven't been on this level. I think it really shows how being well versed in the genre and understanding the different hidden systems and why they're there, it goes such a long way when you come to making one.
  16. Just an early prototype, but this already feels great to play. Storm Vulcan - https://roeri.itch.io/storm-vulcan If you want some scores to beat. Arcade Mode - 68,850 Storm Vulcan mode - 100,600 - https://streamable.com/glkav3 Bullet Hell Monday coming 12th september according to the steam page - https://store.steampowered.com/app/2003660/Bullet_Hell_Monday/
  17. Whew! I always assumed running a proper arcade nowadays would have to be a passion project, so you would never see things like that. Sounds like the cabinet has been wired like that since they set it up. I know beggars can't be choosers, but bloody hell. I think that'd be more disappointing than not finding any shmups. Finding one and it being unplayable like that.
  18. This is great. CrossGunr, a pico-8 game by groovy shmup homie, Aktane - https://aktanedev.itch.io/crossgunr There's a score to beat. 15,205 - https://streamable.com/ors7re It looks like terarin is making another game with Toshiyuki Takahashi "supervising" called "Star Gagnant" and it's going to be crowdfunded and it looks like it's a switch exclusive - https://ubgoe.com/projects/249
  19. I keep creating new folders in which I put the games I'm currently playing. I started off just adding games to favourites but the favourites list got too long so I got rid. I started a folder called "currently playing", then came "- now", and to make sure that the next folder appeared above it alphabetically it was given the name "- anow". The current folder is "- AAA playing". If you've got a better system that requires less thought, energy and time, I'm all ears.
